Welcome Winter?

When I woke up yesterday morning there was snow on the ground ... and it was still snowing ... brrrrr!!! Don't get me wrong ... I LIKE snow. It's actually very pretty!! And skiing is fun ... so is building a snowman ... or having a great snowball fight ... making snow angels ... I actually quite love how it looks and changes our landscape.

However ...

I do NOT like to be cold!! Which it seems that I am from about October to June!! If we could just figure out a way for it to be warm AND have snow at the same time, then I'd be good to go!! Guess there's not much chance of that ... but I'm really not quite ready to switch gears to winter. Although, I DO hafta admit that I have already started listening to Christmas music (something which I fall into right after Halloween every year ... I love holiday music, and listening to it for only one month is just NOT long enough for me!!).

Anywho ... winter has absolutely NOTHING to do with this card ... this is, however, probably my favorite stamp set from this year's catalog. Kinda hard to make an UGLY card with it!! So, there ya have it ...

Utah has really strange seasonal changes. Most of the time we just SLAM from one season into another. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if it were 70 degrees next weekend after our weekend of snow this go 'round ...

Happy Sunday! Smiley from millan.net

LOVE this gorgeous card! And...please keep the snow out your way! We had a couple of inches last week and that's enough for me! :-)

Beautiful card, Wendy. Love the combination of color, d.p., images and embellishments...Gorgeous!!

Winter hit early here in the AZ desert this a.m. with snow on the Catalina mountains and lots of rain on the desert floor and temps in the 40s. Just a few days ago we were in the 80s!

Absolutely beautiful card!!! Our CA weather can't make up it's mind between Summer and fall but I hear that Fall has finally gotten here...including some rain! Keep your snuggies on....and hope you find more ways to stay warm!

Wow! This is beyond gorgeous! Love everything about it! I like snow too and don't even mind the cold until it gets down to single digits. Good luck in your quest for snowy warmth :)
